Garments, trims and accessories from ancient Egypt to 1915
By Katherine Strand Holkeboer
If you want to create costumes from scratch, then this is the book for you! Bursting with diagrams and illustrations, the patterns in this book represent a wide range of periods and styles and are all illustrated in three basic sizes. The patterns have been adapted to fit modern figures and are intended to be representative of the era. Rather than being specific, they are typical and in some cases simplified in order to allow the costumer to adapt them imaginatively. Construction techniques are expressed simply and clearly, step by step. This fantastic book also includes decorative patterns for every time period to add authenticity to your costumes. Read more...
